Commencing my working life in the mid-seventies, the vast majority of my time has been spent within the construction industry. I have worked on a variety of engineering, new build, alteration and refurbishment projects across house, historical, farm and commercial and retail buildings and within the railway environment as an apprentice, tradesman, foreman and supervisor. I also spent four years as a contracts manager in a maintenance based environment before entering the field of health and safety full time in 1998.
Within health and safety; I have again worked on a range of project types carrying out health and safety inspections, providing consultancy advice including policy and assessment development, determination of safe systems of work, undertaking audits and incident investigation. I have also worked as a planning supervisor (converting to a CDM Coordinator and now have undertaken the conversion exams for Principal Designer) on small and large projects, in addition to developing and delivering training courses including CITB courses.
I Have a Master of Science degree in Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety Management through Portsmouth University, renowned in this field. I passed the NEBOSH National General Certificate with distinction in 1996 and completed the NVQ Level 4 in Occupational Safety and Health a couple of years later.
I have certification to be an internal auditor for the ISO 9000 series and as a lead auditor for the OHSAS 18001. I also have certification as a lead accident investigator, A CITB trainer and hold a PEGC teacher training qualification. In addition, I have had training in scaffold and advanced scaffold inspection, asbestos safety, fire safety, traffic management, mechanical and electrical safety and crane safety.
In addition; I have a training certificate for Further and Adult training through the City and Guilds (7307 Stages I and II) and an assessors award.
